Provocative and legendary tennis star and expert commentator/analyst John McEnroe's long-awaited follow-up to his last bestseller.

Over a decade after number one bestselling book Serious, John McEnroe is finally back and ready to talk once again.

Since his hit book, he's maintained a huge presence announcing at tennis's majors, has guest starred in TV shows like 30 Rock and Curb Your Enthusiasm, and has been competing on the court, winning ATP Tour of Champions and playing in special events, exhibitions and charity events around the globe. The beloved, controversial and respected tennis legend reveals even more from his life and career with the signature style that has made him the enduring cultural figure and icon he is.

About the Author

John McEnroe is a former World No.1 professional tennis player. He won seven Grand Slam singles titles, nine Grand Slam men's doubles titles, and one Grand Slam mixed doubles title. He is the author of the bestselling memoir Serious. John is a father of six, an art collector, musician, business man and continues to be a senior tennis player and one of the BBS's Wimbledon commentators.

The tennis legend and TV pundit is rarely short of an opinion, and here he sounds off on modern art, rock stars, Richard Branson's Necker Island, guitar playing, Donald Trump, beer, the BBC and Adam Sandler. Oh yes, and tennis * MAIL ON SUNDAY * Who can forget the shouty bad boy, infamous for his temper! Now a respected elder statesman of tennis, his fascinating memoir reveals all * BEST * The one-time enfant terrible of the Centre Court has not mellowed with age if his recent pronoucements on Serena Williams are any measurement * RTE GUIDE * McEnroe has established himself as perhaps the most distinctive voice in tennis punditry -- Andrew Anthony * THE OBSERVER * McEnroe has forged a second career as an opinionated, well-informed and indeed pre-eminent commentator and analyst. But it should not be forgotten just how scintillating a player he was, especially on grass. For those with fond memories of those days, McEnroe provides some telling sketches of his old rivals. -- Nick Pitt * SUNDAY TIMES * He has proved an excellent commentator during big tournaments, as he'll remind us this fortnight at Wimbledon. -- Simon Kuper * THE SPECTATOR *
